2005/2006 Rugby Season

The schedule for the upcoming season of rugby has already been released for the 1st division men and premiers. The 1sts start off on Sept. 17th, away against Nanaimo, and the prems start Sept 25 in Cowichan. The full schedule can be found at veloxrugby.com, www.bcrugby.com, or at www.bcrugbynews.com. There are no schedules yet for women or juniors.

Training is already in full swing for most squads, so if you plan on playing this season and haven't been out, you need to get moving. Until the end of August, we are across the street on Thursdays but at Velox on Tuesdays.

Touch Tournament

The 7-aside touch tourny is on this weekend at Velox - with a first place prize of $500.

It's a mixed touch competition, compulsory one girl on the field at all times with rolling substitutions. Girl's tries are worth 2 points, guy's tries are worth 1 point. $10 per player entry fee. International touch rules.

Don't know how to play??

Refereed games will be held at Velox on Tuesday 23rd August. Touch is fun for all skill and fitness levels, get a team together and come out and play one of the fastest growing sports around.

Email victoriatouch@hotmail.com for entry or details.

Entries close Tuesday 23rd August.

Deal on Boots

All Sports is offering a deal on rugby cleats to Velox members. If you mention you are with Velox, you will get  a discount on any brand they carry. Larger discounts (40% !!!) are available, however, if a group of players go together to order Adidas boots.

Player Accomodations

Two new bedrooms for players are being added to the apartments upstairs. Beds have already been donated, but we are looking for an extra refrigerator: can you help out? Do you have one you can donate? Contact Antz at a_mirando@hotmail.com
